Shamelessly stole this post idea from Lisa. I know others have used this template as well and I enjoy reading them on Friday, so hopefully you will too :) If not, I did add a few photos of Max for good measure.
The high of my week was celebrating Mother's Day with my mom and mother in law, and of course Eric and Max. I also had a former student as a "Secret Reader" today in my class. I love seeing my former students read to my class!
The low of my week was kindergarten kids with spring fever, and not having invented teleportation yet… I want to be able to beam myself to BFF Katie's house to help her juggle her newborn and toddler, though I'm not sure how helpful I would be if I add Max into the mix.
A book I am reading is Anne Frank Diary of a Young Girl. I am technically re-reading this since I read it in 7th grade.
A podcast episode I loved was um… a lot. I have a podcast problem. I think my favorite podcast at the moment is Dear Sugar. It's SO good. I am stupidly wasting any moments of my life listening to the Undisclosed podcast, aka podcast about the same case as Season 1 of Serial. It's so incredibly biased but fascinating nonetheless. I am also currently in love with the Starr Struck Radio podcast (thanks Caroline for the recommendation) and even though I have heard probably 17 different podcast episodes about the book The Fringe Hours, I still enjoyed Jess Lively's take on it this week. I should probably actually read the book now.
For my workouts, I completed 1 run (after Max went to bed on Monday night! aka… I ran at night, this is unheard of for me) and 1 leg lifting session. I'm going to run again tomorrow. I've been aiming for 2 runs and 2 lifts a week, a little behind this week due to Mother's Day but slow and steady wins the race
The best money I spent was I finally bought a jogging stroller and it arrives tomorrow!!! I am seriously hoping it was the best money I spent this month because it was not cheap. But, this will help me squeeze in my two runs a week and make it easier to take beach walks this summer. Also, I justified it because I finally got reimbursed for the new car seat I had to buy after I was rear ended in December. Yes, I realize that I originally spent this money but since it took so long to get it back it's basically forgotten money. #greatlogic
My plans this weekend include celebrating my brother's graduation (he got his MBA!), and visiting a huge kids consignment sale at my old high school
What podcast did you love this week? What are you reading?
